Hi Muhammad,


Please know that in order to add someone else's billing method to your account, the owner of the billing method needs to authorize you to use it. Please contact the card-issuing bank for more information about the specific charge decline. You can also check out this help article for more information about available Billing Methods that might work for you.

Hello Tamim, 


Yes absolutely you can buy connects by using your friend's credit card, but make sure first to ask your friend to use his card, his willingness is compulsory,  Welcome to Upwork, Its good to see you on this beautiful platform Smiley Happy
